We could manufacture a ton of these on the Enterprise; they mean nothing to us!

"I figured you'd want someone who can hear you when consoles are exploding all around you."

"Exploding?!"

"We may be going into a combat situation. You think you're ready for that, Cadet?"

"Sir! Yes, sir! Absolutely, sir."

If it should become necessary to fight, do you think you could arrange to find some ROCKS to throw at them?!

You have been told not to do that. Why can't you understand? It will arouse their suspicion. And if that happens, we will have to punish you. We will, I promise you!

I am pleasantly surprised at your capacity for deductive reasoning, Captain. When you are not being bellicose, there appears to be no end to your arsenal of formidable talents.

"Why?"
"Why? Why, to give you a taste of your future. A preview of things to come. Con permiso, Capitan. The hall is rented, the orchestra engaged. It's now time to see if you can dance."

I believe you will also de-evolve into an earlier form of primate - possibly similar to a lemur or pygmy-marmoset.

KIRK: Would you prefer to do nothing?
McCOY: I'd prefer a dose of common sense. You are proposing to head backwards in time, find humpback whales, then bring them forward in time, drop them off, and hope to hell they tell this Probe what to do with itself!
KIRK: That's the general idea.
McCOY: That's crazy!
KIRK: You have a better idea, now's the time.

O'BRIEN: You don't know me very well, Constable, but I, I, I've been in service to the Federation, Starfleet, all my adult life. No one has ever questioned my loyalty. No one in my entire life has ever had cause to ask, Miles O'Brien, are you a criminal? I took an oath to defend the Federation and what it stands for. I don't steal from them. I don't lie to them. I'm no angel, but I try to live every day as the best human being I know how to be. I need my little girl to wake up in the morning and look up at me and see a man she can respect. Until now, she always could.
ODO: Being accused of a crime is not a disgrace, Chief. Some of the great figures of history have shared the honour with you.
O'BRIEN: I didn't figure on dying a martyr.
ODO: Not all of them were martyrs, not all of them died. Some of them were just innocent men... like you. Now, I've managed to get myself named to your defense team. I'll be there tomorrow. Your wife will be there as well, but she won't be weeping and neither will you. I want the Archon to see the clear, unwavering eyes of an innocent man. Is that understood?
O'BRIEN: Yes, sir.
